These came out great! I tried them even with the above review, because I've nev been disappointed with any cookie on this website. I did add additional flour, maybe a total of a half a cup. I just kept adding a bit more until the douh would hold a bit of shape and not be so "shiney". I used the caramel recipe from the salted caramel thumbprint recipe, as I had made those as well. I also refrigerated the dough over night. I got great reviews and my husband was eating them before I could even finish & he's kind of picky when it comes to "new" recipes!

Cookies flattened out, were gooey and raw after baking 11 minutes. Baked cookies longer and were still somewhat gooey. Had to throw them in the garbage. Don't waste your time or ingredients.
